District Vintage Port

One of the greatest ports ever made by Sandeman, still showing concentration and intensity as well as the refined complexity of age. As George Sandeman says of it in the November 2018 Decanter - where it featured as one of their series 'Wine Legends' - 'The 1945 vintage has a special place in my heart. It was the vintage my father contributed to the Factory House when he joined.' L&S (Jan 2019)

Ripe yet restrained and gentle on the nose, touch of dark chocolate; rich, ripe, tight-knit, bitter-sweet fruit, very fine, firm and still very fresh with lovely length and depth.Richard Mayson,  (Nov 2011)

A real smell of smoky roses. Amazing power and punch on the middle palate and finish, great fruit and impact. So frank and foursquare. The greatest Sandeman with the heavenly 1912.Serena Sutcliffe MW (Nov 2002)

Protruding cork and level into neck: fairly pale but lovely colour; sweet and equally lovely bouquet and flavour.Michael Broadbent MW (Nov 2000)


Scotsman George Sandeman set up business in Tom's Coffee House in London in 1790, trading in Ports and Sherries. An agency in Cadiz soon followed, and then a Port Lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia and, by the beginning of the 20th Century, Sandeman Ports and Sherries were to be found all across the world. Seven generations down the line, another George Sandeman can be found at the helm of the House of Sandeman, although the family relinquished ownership in 1980. Sandeman are now owned by Sogrape. Sandeman's most widely admired products are their aged Tawny Ports.
